THE Tory party has been searching for a new leader, since Boris Johnson announced he would be stepping down as PM in July 2022.

On September 5, 2022, it was announced that Liz Truss had won the vote to become Conservative leader and the UK’s new Prime Minister – and would soon be addressing the nation in her new role.

What time is Liz Truss’ speech?

Liz Truss saw off the challenge of Rishi Sunak to become Britain’s third female PM on September 5, 2022.

Truss will only officially become PM once her predecessor, Boris Johnson, informs the Queen of his resignation.

Johnson will travel to Balmoral on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, to inform Her Majesty that he is resigning.

The Queen will receive Johnson in Scotland, rather than travelling to London, as she has been advised not to travel due to ongoing mobility issues.

After this, Truss will join The Queen who will ask her to form a new government.

Truss will then return to London and is expected to make her speech outside Downing Street at 4pm on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.

What will Liz Truss say?

In her first speech as Prime Minister, Truss is expected to outline her goals for her time as PM.

She is expected to address the issue of the cost of living after promising to tackle soaring energy bills and inflation to “make Britain work”.

Truss may also reiterate the victory speech she made after being named the new UK PM.

She said: “I will deliver a bold plan to cut taxes and grow our economy. I will deliver on the energy crisis, dealing with people’s energy bills, but also dealing with the long term issues we have on energy supply.

“I know that we will deliver. We will deliver, we will deliver, we will deliver. And we we will deliver a great victory for the Conservative Party in 2024.”

Truss is also expected to thank former PM Johnson after he tackled Brexit and the coronavirus pandemic during his term in office.

She will also be tasked with naming her new Cabinet.

On Wednesday, September 7, 2022, the new team are expected to meet before entering their first Prime Ministers Question Time in the House of Commons.

The new Cabinet, along with the PM will go head-to-head with the leader of the Labour party, Sir Keir Starmer.
